North Shore – July 4th, 2007

July 4, 2007

Spent the afternoon looking for fish from shore. Started up up in Beverly, then Salem, and finally Danvers from various shore spots. Wind was brutal up in Beverly near high tide. Found some fish that were willing to bite but they were SMALLLLL! Smallest I have seen this year. Keeps the 7 weight active and fun though.

My honest opinion though is that the big fish are there. Just not playing with our lures, flies, and chunks of bait. On my way home I stopped to check a spot and saw bait fish (8-10″) leaping out of the water. Not sure what they were as they were out there too far but within casting range. I took a few casts and nada. Just have to keep trying new things and figure them out a little better I guess.
